Cleaning the Keens with Nikwax

Cleaning the Keens with Nikwax

in Apparel by Jeff Jackson

I don’t particularly care about cleaning my hiking boots usually, however, I wear my Keens not just on the trail, but pretty much everywhere. For a professional, one can’t have dirty boots all the time, even in rural Georgia, where I live. So I decided to use my Keens as guinea pigs for this little experiment. My Keens weren’t extremely dirty. They weren’t caked with mud or anything, but just your regular run-of-the-mill dirty from regular use.

I started by rinsing them with warm water by using a wet paper towel. This gets any caked on dirt off.
